Our current catalogue of exceptional properties spans the Gulf Coast – from Destin to Panama City Beach.

Why Ocean Reef chose Crystal Beach

Crystal Beach is home to colorful classic-styled beach cottages, intimate condominium buildings, white picket fences, meandering sidewalks and quaint eateries. This community is family-centric and here, the unwinding is easy!

A tad disappointed

  • 3 of 5

They had roaches during the whole visit in the kitchen area. Both televisions upstairs were not working upon arrival. We did have a note (which could've been placed in a more visible area) saying they would be there to repair it on July 5th. No one came the whole time; therefore, both televisions remained broken. My husband called and I also called ocean reef to see about this issue. We both left messages and no one returned our calls. Place was nice but could be updated for the price we paid. Lots of room and loved all the back doors and pool area. Outside table was shady to eat dinner. The place was just like the pictures online. We were just very disappointed with the lack of communication from the realty, roach issue, and televisions not working properly during the entire visit. Loved the fact that it was pet friendly and didn't smell like pets were present.

Owner's Response: Kayla, We want to thank you for staying with us and also want to apologize for the gap in communication. We have addressed this issue and beefed up our staff for next year so that we can better assist our guests. Please note that our area is indigenous for Palmetto Bugs which look very similar to Cockroaches. They tend to be found around areas that have palm trees and other types of plants. We do quarterly Pest Control on all of our properties but we have address this with our Pest Company so that the matter can be resolved. The televisions not working may have been related to the upgrades that the local cable companies did over the summer which upgraded all properties to a digital signal. We have since sent maintenance to the property to fix that as well. We hope that you choose to come back and visit our beautiful beaches here on the Emerald Coast and look forward to seeing you next year.
